Klopp eager to halt Bayern charge

28 March 2013 18:34

Borussia Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp is eager to delay Bayern Munich claiming the Bundesliga title for as long as possible.

The Bavarians are runaway leaders in the German top flight, holding a 20-point advantage over the reigning champions after 26 matches.

Bayern could wrap up the title this weekend if they beat Hamburg and Dortmund fail to triumph at Stuttgart.

While Klopp is aware of the ramifications of this weekend's results, he does not want Dortmund to be prematurely stripped of their Bundesliga crown.

"I will happily congratulate them, but not on Saturday because we want to beat Stuttgart first," Klopp told Ruhr-Nachrichten.

"It seems that Stuttgart always step up their performance against Dortmund. Games against them are always very intense."
